Born in Guelph, Ontario, Canada, she reflects, "my kind-hearted imaginary monster was perhaps not so imaginary afterall. I've been drawing ever since I can remember, and alternate worlds/dimensions have always been real and close by. Take the dreamworld, which is a journey into another realm. It's about bringing back bits and pieces of the ethereal planes and translating this information into the form of art and song. Creativity carries the core signature of emotion, and at its heart is the infinite drive of love and curiosity."

Paulina's world is filled with magical creatures born of intuition and imagination. The work she creates is a glimpse into realities that seem far away, yet are closer than they may seem. Having spent much of her time drawing from a young age, Paulina finds solace in creating and sharing her brew of whimsy. Her work has been collected worldwide for over 25 years.

"The pool of my creativity is blended from all things real, fantastical, emotional, and spiritual, and it draws energy from everything around. I never know when a new creation wants to be born, so I like to have a sketch book handy when I'm away from the drawing board."

Paulina creates her work mainly using watercolour and pen/ink. "My first love is line art; working with shadow and light using intuitive, organic, fine lines. I like to combine my pen & ink work and watercolour layer by layer, and my technique varies from piece to piece." She's long been inspired by the works of artists from the golden age of illustration such as Arthur Rackham, John Tenniel, Kay Nielsen, and Sulamith Wulfing.

A songwriter and Projekt Records artist, Paulina composes and produces music. "I've been writing songs on piano ever since I was a little girl; it was time to delve back into that audio flame. Sound and vision come from the same sea of creativity. You could say that my music is what my art sounds like."

A dancer, Paulina uses movement as a way of accessing new ideas and inspirations for her visual and audio projects.

Paulina and her husband Kevin live in Chattanooga, Tennessee, with their two feline furbabies, Mortimer and Lilith.
